The 9 AM EST start time is for pre-game training. We ask that all players are in place at this time. All efforts are being made to minimize pre-game time. Exact game run time will depend on this and how the game progresses. The endpoint will be determined by in-game events.
Den of Wolves is a game about the interactions between politics and survival during a time of crisis. Players represent the vessels in the “Survivor Fleet” – a group of surviving vessels fleeing from a catastrophic attack by a ruthless enemy. These vessels are trying to survive in the midst of a crisis. Some players are civilians whilst others are representing government and military elements of the fleet. This game is about interactions between all of these different entities as they attempt to survive.
The game blends both ‘Political’ (talking and negotiating) and ‘Operational’ (decisions, units and resources) gameplay. Some roles are exclusively Political, while others have a much greater focus on Operational matters. In general, players should expect a significant amount of resource management and player-to-player negotiation and discussion, with a small amount of unit positioning and combat.
